Written for those individuals who already have a basic background in refrigeration and air conditioning, this two-volume course covers heat pump fundamentals, components, applications, installation, and service. Heat gain and heat loss calculations based on ACCA’s Manual J are included, as are troubleshooting guides for both the electrical and refrigeration systems.

All types of heat pump systems—both packaged systems and split systems—are studied, including air-to-air heat pumps, water-source heat pumps, and various kinds of special-purpose heat pumps, such as high-efficiency and multi-capacity units. The use of supplemental and auxiliary heat is discussed. The course also features a simplified performance guide/checklist for servicing heat pumps in both the heating and cooling cycles.

Note: This course is sold only as a two volume set. Volumes are not available individually.
